    for some reason, the scrollwheel on my laptop doesn't work. well, it works, but it doesnt. let me explain:

    when I scroll in any program, nothing happens. however, my mouse pointer still changes to the one with the scrollwheel next to it (it usually changes to that while i'm scrolling) so I know it detects my scrolling. I tried updating my mouse drivers to the most recent one, but the installer told me that I already had the most recent ones.

    I looked on some random site that suggested changing firefox settings for some reason, didnt work either. I don't know what to do!

    You mean the gesture thing on the side of the touch pad, or do you have a usb mouse?

    Also if its a wireless mouse, replace the batteries.

    the gesture thing on the side of my touch pad. it usually works well (the touchpad on an hp tx2500z is awesome! well at least I like it. but I guess it makes sense since the whole computer is made for graphic design and such)
